I've been searching for many years my ancestors in Eastern Germany (Thuringe or Saxony), in a place called Steinbach, where my forfather Johann Ernst HARTMANN was born in 1763, son of Ernst (minor) and Margarethe HELBIG. He emigrated then before 1788 to Strasbourg (Alsace, France). I wrote in 1991 to the different evangelic churches called Steinbach, but all answers were negative. Who could help me any further ? A reasonable award could be granted to whom will give me a precise church record. Thank you so much.
